Author Submit

Thank you for stopping by. We accept short stories about real life ( Fiction or non-fiction) year-round and from anywhere in the world. We have a small staff of three dedicated indie authors that can be reached at the email below.

Why Submit to Beneath The Rainbow?
1. We place links to your social media accounts and your published book(s) after your short story with a link to your Amazon page. Example: Scroll down below the story to see the Authors published books and Bio. If the Author has no published books then its just a google search or google ad in that spot.

2. In the near future I will be doing audio versions of some of the stories. (Mine to start with) This gets my voice and your story in front of people that might not otherwise read online.

3. I post a link to your story that has your links and bio on, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. I also email to my small email list of dedicated readers.

Currently we are purchasing traffic to the site so you will get good search engine traffic of people wanting to read stories and poems. In addition we have a small newsletter that will feature a link to your story when it is first published.

We also encourage you to put a link to your author home page, author profile, Twitter, Facebook etc at the end of your story. Linking back to Beneath the Rainbow is encouraged (and appreciated) if we publish your story.

If anyone ever thinks its a good ideal to do a anthology type thing authors will be contacted and any compensation will be worked out between them (The Authors). This is my real name connected to my real account not a business account. We do not steal anyone’s work. We will not republish off this site without Author permission.

Essays/stories should be between 300 and 4,000 words long and should have a literary quality as well as being engaging

We accept submissions from anywhere in the world, but stories must be in English.

Novel excerpts are OK but only if it stands alone as its own story.

This site is updated weekly ( Friday night or Saturday morning depending on your time zone) so it may take a few weeks before you see your story.

We had some problems with the form.  Feel free to just email your short story to
